More shopping adventures

A continuation of my last blog! So after Star Base I went down the street to Half-Priced books where I picked up this lot.

Star Wars: Union, which I've wanted for a while. A kids book from TCW. Star Wars: Jango Fett. And Star Wars: Episode III. :)

I also scored this. I've been wanting it forever, but kept forgetting or being too broke. Found it for $15!

Then I stopped by the dollar store next store, and found these. Awesome glow-in-the-dark puzzles! I can't wait to move so I can put all these puzzles together!

Well that's it for now. Laundry is almost done. :)


Star Base adventure

So for a couple of years I've known about this store in Columbus called Star Base. But I kept forgetting about it or I was just too lazy to make it up there. Until today. I originally went to try and buy a sonic screwdriver. Unfortunately they only has the mini one and the big screwdriver one, and I really wanted the toy. But either way, it was a pretty cool store. They mostly sell Star Trek, but they also had a little bit of everything else. The awesome thing was that they had a lot of cool random clearance Star Wars things. As I was checking out they also told me about a giant garage sale they are hosting next weekend, which I can hopefully make it to. Details about that are available on their blog, which I linked above.

I apologize for not getting any picture of the place, but I got there only to realize I forgot my memory card in my laptop. Which is sad because I found something that reminded me of Andy aka SithSarcasm at Half-Priced books. XD

So anyway. Here is what I walked away with from there:

First there was a bin of old Taco Bell Star Wars toys, so I bought the whole set.

The Death Star is one of those spinner toys where it looks like it's blowing up. Floating Cloud City. SUPER BOBA. The Millennium Falcon is a top, I think. Half Vader half Yoda illusion box. R2D2 with Leia figure and hologram. And a picture block, which you can turn in to a lot of photos.

They didn't have many, but I dug the Star Wars ones out. Want to know why I got two of each? To send them to you guys! If you want to get a personalized post card from me, comment on my Forcebook status where I link this post with the phrase 'This is where the fun begins'. The first four will get one!

Separatist Droid Trifighter die cast model. For $2.00.

Adorable Vader in his Tie Fighter bobble head!

More shopping continued, but it won't let me add any more pictures to this blog. To be continued in the next entry!


Star Wars Collection update

So this isn't a big update but I just wanted to show you a few things I got this week. I went to Half-Priced books and went though all of their comics to dig out any Star Wars ones I didn't have. Came up with this:
$3.00 for them so I can't complain. Next time I go to the comic store I'm going to grab a bunch of extra bag&boards so I can file them away with the rest.

Philosophy class.

This is just not my thing. I have to take this class for my major but I feel that everything we talk about is pointless. Not sure how people do this as a living, or how Adam could stand to get a degree in this. My head hurts. I mean, I understand everything, I just really don't care.

The Wedding of River Song

So I was finally able to watch the series 6 finale of Doctor Who on Monday night. I'm still not sure how I felt about it. I've had mixed feeling this entire series, especially the second half. We started off with 'Let's Kill Hitler', which I didn't really enjoy. Once upon a time I really loved River Song and I really looked forward to finding out more about here. I feel like Hitler was the start of the down fall of her for me. Her story suddenly became over done and cheesy. I really just didn't enjoy her at all anymore.

There were a few episode I enjoyed, and a few bits of other episodes I enjoyed. But over all I was very dissapointed with part 2 of series 6.

Now on the finale. River is too overpowered. It really waters down her character. I loved the part leading up to his death, where he was talking about all the things he could do. (especially the references to Rose and Jack, two of my favorite companions) I also enjoyed how the Doctor escaped death, I just wish River hadn't been involved. Why did they need to get married exactally? I believe that River was in love with the Doctor at that point, but I don't think he was in love with her yet. I just.....I've gone from loving River to hating her.

I guess we'll see where this goes with the next season.

New nail polish! Ready for October! Wet n Wild 'Everybody Loves Redmond'

The definition of internet.

So as we near the end of week two of fall quarter at OSU, I'm still not doing my homework. Why is this? The internet. Tonight started off well. My laptop was on the floor, where I left it this morning after cramming down my readings for class today. I am on my bed, which is roughly three feet above the ground. I'm lazy, I was doing my homework. I glued some test tiles to some foam core for my glass forming class. Huzzah. Then I went to work on my sketchbook, as we have to have 30 thumbnails for class tomorrow.

At some point I decided to pick up my laptop. End homework. Begin:
Catching up on my Youtube subscriptions.
Watching a lot of Charlie McDonnell videos.
Listening to Dr Horrible and singing along.
Listening to Dubstep and trying to get to work.
Listening to Chameleon Circuit's new album, Still Got Legs.

Now it is 3am. Dammit.

Tomorrow I have to wake up early to go spend money on glass for my project. Then I get to go to class and make stuffs. Then work, where I makes the coffeez. And like every night, I will probably have to stay late and help close custodial as well.

Tonight I dual wielded Coffee Shop and Custodial. I am a Marketplace Rogue.

Recent additions to my collection

So I did a few Vlogs a bit ago about my Star Wars collection. I wasn't able to cover all of it but I managed most. You can view part one here and part two here.

But over the past two weeks I have acquired more that I would like to share with you!

I went to Target last week and came home with Obi-Wan. I realized I didn't have an Obi-Wan figure, which is horrible because I love him. So I bought Clone Wars Obi. :)

Then pay day came on Friday.

I found this binder on clearance at Target for $1.25. I think it is freaking awesome. Last clearance binder I got was Darth Vader. I like this one because it is covered in plastic which will help keep it nicer, also it has pockets. It is now being used as the binder for my glass class.

The dollar section at Target has quite a few Star Wars things. There were some little note books that I thought about getting and may go back for. And Yo-yos. And pens, that I have. But I grabbed these two holographic puzzles. I plan to put them together, seal them, and frame them. :)

Next I went to Toys'R'Us, where the toys are more expensive, but they have a better selection. I have really been wanting a Rex since I started watching Clone Wars, so I grabbed him. I also grabbed Darth Maul because I've always wanted one but never seen one. I really don't like his cloak though, it is too poofy and awkward.

Went to the comic store. Got the new issues of the Star Wars comics I'm reading. Knight Errant: Deluge 1, The Old Republic: The Lost Suns 4, and Invasion: Revelations 3. I still need to catch up on Darth Vader and the Lost Command. I also picked up Buffy Season 9 1, Angel & Faith 1, and Flashpoint 4 & 5. :D

Saturday was garage sale day. I lugged a ton of crap over to my friend Nicole's house to sell and while we were setting up I spotted these three things. So she let me have the. The Millennium Falcon Tiger Arts hand held game, which I just found is $60 on Amazon. A fast food Chewy/AT-ST toy. And another Burger Kind Tatooine toy which I gave away on The Forebook to user Dad_Bane.

Then I discovered the joy of shopping on Craigslist.
I found this 12" tall hollow ceramic Darth Vader for $5. He is not a licensed product and is missing his lightsaber, but I though it was odd looking so I got it. I want to put a light inside him, so light will shine out his eyes and control panel.

THEN I found this. The 2 1/2 foot long Millennium Falcon that usually goes for over $100. It's missing the figures (they gave me a little Yoda and a Super Battle Droid) but that's okay! ITS A 2.5' MILLENNIUM FALCON. FOR $25!

So that's about it for now. I'm supposed to pick up and episode 1 Commtech thing for $3 at some point as well, I just have to find time. I also found out that this weekend, about an hour west of me, someone is having a garage sale and selling their collection. They claim over 1,000 figures. I need to pay rent and have a wedding to go to...but it's so tempting..

May the Force be with you.

I'll keep trying.

I swear, I'm horrible at blogging. Well I currently have the urge to Vlog, but I can't find my camera anywhere. So why not start a blog in it's place? Blogging requires a lot less technology

So I will take this opening blog to first tell you that if you like Star Wars, you should join

Also, you should listen to episode 8 of the Forcebook Podcast (formally The Forcebook Cnatina Podcast), where we talk about the Blu-rays and I have two lines. :)
